Shamrock never had that great of a career. He never won a tournanment event against guys that weren't that skilled back in the day.
Shamrock did have a great career. So he did not win a tournament. The guy has skills. No one would get as far as he did if they sucked. Ken was the only one that could compete with Royce. Some people don't think Royce was good, but he won 3 of the first 4 UFC's when they fought multiple times in a night. Shamrock ain't what he used to be, but to say he sucks is really unfair. Hell, Steve Jennum won UFC 3 in 1994 as a replacement for Shamrock and had a career record of 2-3 as of 2/97.
